0.00

THE BLEND
54% Chardonnay
15% Pinot Noir
31% Pinot Meunier

COMBINATIONS
This vintage Champagne is a generous wine that is perfect served with spicier dishes such as a parmesan gougère, Serrano ham grissini or carrot and cumin gazpacho.

TASTING
Appearance
 It is deep yellow in color with golden glints. It produces delicate, abundant bubbles.

Fragrance A highly expressive nose. Its complexity springs from its notes of ripe fruit (pear, quince) and fruit jelly. The range of grilled and toasted fragrances appears next, giving way to notes of menthol and spices (ginger, cinnamon and anise).

Taste The attack demonstrates great generosity, with remarkable power and richness. The finish is fruity (with a predominance of yellow-fleshed fruit such as Mirabelle plums), generous and lingering.
